Abstract: Primary production at a single station in Kaneohe Bay,
Oahu, Hawaii was studied over a six-month period. Vertical
profiles of production, plant biomass, light, and temperature
were obtained and the data applied to a production model. The
diel changes in surface production were measured and used to
estimate daily production.
Primary production per unit surface area was found to
average 1.5 grams carbon per square meter per day and was
higher on days with little vertical stratification and with
lower incident radiation. Light appeared to limit production
below .12 langleys per minute which occurred below about
five meters depth.
